How would you like your Bieber today? If your answer is "sans dreadlocks but with a side of face tattoo," you're in luck! After shaving his pretty much universally despised dreads on Friday, he added some facial art to his reportedly more than 50-strong collection of tattoos.

According to Us Weekly, Biebs received a small cross at the corner of his eye at the West 4th Tattoo Parlor in New York City, which his artist said "represents his journey in finding purpose with God." He made the (likely rather painful) decision before a performance at Meatpacking District club Up & Down.

Below, the face tat in question.
